This stunning engagement ring features a marquise shaped diamond prong set in platinum, with a pear-shaped green peridot on either side, and custom yellow gold filigree on the shank. It was created in consultation with a client from Kirkland, WA, who initially reached out to us online through our Ring Builder tool.
We used the elements she selected to develop an original design, which she then modified until it was just what she wanted. In addition to engaging in online communication, the client also visited our Bellevue, WA showroom in person several times to discuss the project and view examples of the various features she wanted to incorporate.
This design centers on a three-stone setting, anchored by a 1.01 carat marquise shaped brilliant cut diamond. This elegant stone is beautifully displayed in a six prong platinum setting, with one prong at each of the points and two on each side. It’s oriented to sit lengthwise when worn, which is a popular arrangement as it helps make the finger appear longer and more slender.
The green peridots on either side of this center stone are pear-shaped, with their wider ends resting up against the side of the prongs holding the diamond. These side-stones are also prong set, and the way they taper moving away from the wider center stone helps ease the transition to the narrower band.
Split Shank and Filigree
In fact, the band itself tapers, mirroring the shape of the peridots to some degree. It begins as a solid piece at the bottom, but it splits about one third of the way up the side, and the two pieces move away from each other until they’re about two thirds of the way up to the top. At this point, they curve back in, coming to a point right where they meet the side stones of the center setting.
The space between the split sections of the band is filled with an ornate custom filigree hand-formed from 18k yellow gold. Our client wanted an organic pattern incorporated here, and our expert artisans produced this exquisite design made from twisted vines and leaves.
While there are many ways to customize a design like this, adjusting the pattern in the filigree is a good way to work in a symbol of special significance. Other options include using a different combination of metals, changing the shape of the center and side stones, and choosing a different type or color of gem to replace the current ones. Our experts can help you examine the ways that any of these changes would impact the overall look of the piece, and we’ll continue to make adjustments until you’re completely satisfied with the design.
